There seems to be a consensus on Hubpages that the Bible is whole and truth and nothing else. Some Bibles have more books than others.

Yes, I have read the Bible over 100 times while teaching it. The Bible for me personally is precious and Jesus is the name I call for Creator. Also read hundreds of other religious works, and books omitted. Creator is not in a box.
Yes I do believe this to be true. Some things in that Bible give that away but many do not know it and it is skimmed over in Bible Studies. Thse are wha got me ?ing who and what their agenda was in translating. KJ messed with it for political.
Yes, and I didn't take a class. I did question some things that are in the bible and found out about King James and his treachery and also Constantine before he converted(?) on his deathbed. Religious Tolerance dot Org is a place to start.
Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that "everyone" should take a course, but it did come out that way. Today enlightened people can find their own way, but a class in world religions from a theologian will help some people mired in man's religion.
It couldn't hurt to be more knowledgeable though. I was told today that I should read a certain translation of said Bible above all others. NOT going to do that. I would rather a "whole"some approach.
That is not what I asked.
Is there a particular translation of the Bible you're concerned with?
Perhaps I should repeat what the question was: Who were the Scholars that translated the Books in the Bible and who also decided what books went in. I am not concered with any particular book or translation.
The Bible has been rendered from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Koine into hundreds and hundreds of different languages. More often than not, those who rendered it into Korean, for instance, were not the same who translated it to Zulu or Arabic.
Is there some reason wny you cannot answer the specific question that I asked?
It's too bleary. If you specify which version or language edition of the Bible you're inquiring about it'd be a lot easier to point you in the right direction.
@Joseph, it is obvious that you are going to go around and around and never answer my specific question. So lets not cause pple to go "stir" crazy. It seems that you have a hard time communicating. I am not asking for any direction from anyone.
I must say, you have a very peculiar way of asking for help :)
@Joseph I ask Questions so that other could be inspired to write their own hubs. That is another aspect of Hubpages and making some pennies. You wuld know this if you ask around or read HP TOS. Go write a hub or are you afraid to do so.
